never-quit This summer, littleBits participated in NYC Department of Education’s STEM Summer in the City Program. For 5 weeks, 105 teachers used littleBits to teach 2,100 students lessons such as Invent a Self Driving CarInvent A Throwing Arm. Kids also participated in open challenges like Invent for Good and created games with their inventions. Here’s a rundown of the favorite things we saw and heard at summer school.  

From Teachers

 

“I give the instructions for the challenge, and kids said ‘I’m gonna create something else,’ I told them to ‘Go for it!’”
